Having functioning and healthy garage door springs installed is not only important to the health of your setup, but also contributes a great deal to the overall safe usage of the entire system. There are more reasons than needed to keep your springs in good health, under close inspection, proper care and timely replacement if needed.
Torsion coil and overhead door springs should always be installed in pairs on your door, regardless of which type you have (in most cases, and depending on the type of the door). This ensures that the springs maintain the balance of your doors properly, each one taking an equal amount of the strain of the door’s weight, whether it is in operation or not.
Above and beyond that, springs are vital to the continuous and safe use of the door. Since each does its equal share of the work in supporting and balancing the door, the failure of a single one could leave the door inoperable by making the other spring overcompensate for the weight. It is highly recommended to get safety cables to make sure that if any of the springs break, it will not hurt anyone. The cables hold each spring in place, preventing them from snapping and hurting anyone standing by.
So if one (or both) of your springs have failed, or are showing signs of doing so, then it is not wise to put off spring replacement, and make sure it is professionally taken care of as soon as possible. Keep your door working like it should, efficiently and safely, by keeping a close eye on the condition of your springs.Back To Our Services
